Book review #7

Actually I should maybe change this title to book review number 7 & 8.

I am going to review two books in a series by the same author; Henry Carroll.

Read This If You Want to Take Great PhotographsRead This If You Want to Take Great Photographs of People

First off, I do not know the author and to the best of my knowledge I have no friendships or interests within Amazon or Waterstones.

I guess I should also point out that there are other book stores and online retailers.

If you are an established photographer then these books are probably not for you.

If you have done a couple of short courses you’ll find these books useful as revision because they are made up of all those notes you should have taken but for one reason or another you didn’t put pen to paper.

If you are new to photography and have just signed up for a course I would suggest these books would be a valuable addition to your reading list. I certainly wish I’d had them early on in my learning.

They are a great introduction to the things you do need to know. Presented in a clear and logical order with good example images and suggestions of where to find other good examples.

I’ll be keeping these two books and if anyone I know takes up photography near to their birthday or christmas, they’ll be getting copies as a gift.

Now Mr Carroll, if you happen to see this, when are you going to publish a book about off camera flash / speed lights that is this easy to understand?


The above is a personal opinion and if you want further reviews go and search them out. Thanks for stopping and reading.

Kind regards,

Jim Jimmy James
